A man set a pile of debris ablaze and tried torching himself across the street from the Trump International Hotel in Washington D.C. to protest against the president-elect on Tuesday night.

The man was reportedly hospitalized with burns but did not appear hurt when explaining his motives to a reporter outside the real estate magnate’s hotel .

“We have a dictator that has been elected,” the man told WRC-TV, just as his small fire erupted with what he described as “denatured alcohol.”
I tried to set myself on fire as an act of protest ... to protest the fact that we’ve elected somebody completely incapable of respecting the constitution of the United States,” he added.
 According to the New York Post, the 45-year-old man had third-degree burns on about 10% of his body.
